Amazing performances with THE best storyline
21 March 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Man...Words are not enough to describe "Gunda"...This movie is guaranteed to have a profound impact on the viewers. Be it Mithun's acting, or the entire army of Baddies, this movie has got it all. Surely some people may dismiss the movie as any other "B" grade movie, but the kind of thinking that has gone into writing the story, screenplay, dialogs, and creation of characters is unparalleled.

My personal Fav. scene is where Mithun's sister is going on a "walk" in hot pants, and is saved from molestation by a guy who wants to molest her eventually. Isn't that something. And not to mention the entire gang of just isn't possible to describe how much effort each guy has put in his acting...

Watch this for its full entertainment value...You won't regret it.
